Course content

The MEd Education Studies is designed for qualified teachers and others working within Education and related areas. The course will support you to make a positive impact on the lives of those with whom you work. The various pathways offered have been created to enable you to develop your interests and expertise with the aim of enhancing your professional practice.

The MEd offers a number of pathways, including:
  • Educational Leadership
  • Health, Wellbeing and Sustainability
  • Inclusive Education
  • Philosophy with Children (the only course of its kind in the UK)
  • Supporting Teacher Learning
  • Technology Enhanced Teaching and Learning (Digital Education).
Through the MEd, you will be able to tailor your focus to suit your interests. It offers opportunities to learn with and from others and to build networks that reach beyond the classroom. This part-time course allows you to develop a specialism in a flexible way that suits the demands of work and other commitments.
Rather than leading to a teaching qualification, it enables you to develop skills to study at Masters level and develop a sophisticated understanding of the concept of policy relating to education. It will allow you to extend your interest and understanding of learning and engage in a range of other, education-related areas.
